Foreign Prosecutor Secured for Ramnarace/Belisle Triple Murder Case
Minister of Police, Kareem Musa, says the government has secured a foreign prosecutor for the Ramnarace/Belisle triple murder. Last month, the Special Prosecutor Bill was rejected in the Senate after they believed that it was going against the Constitution. The Bill was crafted for the investigation into the triple murder in Belmopan on New Year’s Eve where the accused killer, Elmer Nah, has some familial connection with the current Director of Public Prosecutions. On Friday, Musa provided an update on the bill and explained that the trial is yet to commence.
Hon. Kareem Musa, Minister of Home Affairs: “The trial has not begun. It is still at the magistrate’s court level. I believe partial disclosure has been provided to the defendant. We are almost at the end of securing our private prosecutor for that case. It is an attorney out of Jamaica and we are hoping to have that concluded by next week.”
The need for a Special Prosecutor is to dispel any bias on the part of the DPP since the accused is the nephew of her estranged husband.
